Estimate 3 and 5/7 times 4 and 3/4 by rounding each factor to the nearest whole number. Explain your choices for rounding.
Personally, I'd round the first fraction to the nearest seventh and the second to the nearest quarter. I'd then multiply the two and round to the nearest whole thereafter. I'd not round first for fear that I'd round too much and get the wrong answer.
